If you can notice a considerable amount of dirt and debris on the visible surfaces of the condenser unit, this is surely a sign of trouble. Similarly, if the air conditioner works less efficiently than before, it most certainly requires professional cleaning. The important thing is not to procrastinate.
It is best if you do not wait for the condenser and evaporator coil units to get dirty before you take action. Ideally, the two units should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a year. Air filter cleaning is required even more often preferably every four to six months. Filters that can no longer do their job require timely replacement, and the new ones should be at least as effective and durable as their previous counterparts.
HVAC Unit Cleaning
Ideally, the process should start with the condenser unit. The fins need to be thoroughly cleaned with a vacuum and/or water depending on the design of the system, their manufacturer, and their condition. It is important to remove the debris from the unit beforehand. There should not be any vegetation around it as well. The blower compartment of the indoor unit should get vacuumed. The fin and drain pan require a thorough cleaning as well. If there is any mold, a special remover should be used to get rid of it. Treatment for future growth prevention is always a good idea.
Air Duct Cleaning
This is an important step for making the most out of the HVAC cleaning process. It also helps to improve your indoor air quality. The cleaning of the ductwork involves loosening accumulations of dust, dirt, pet dandruff, pollen, and other debris and collecting the particles with a powerful vacuum. If mold is detected, it is treated with special removers. If there is any damage to the surfaces, timely repair is crucial in order to preserve the results of the cleaning.
